Celebrating its 29th year, the Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville will take place at the Music City Center February 1 – 3. This year’s headliner will be GRAMMY® award-winning superstar Faith Hill, with her design team, architect Bobby McAlpine and designer Ray Booth.
They will share their experience of building an island paradise in a panel discussion moderated by Leslie Newsom Rascoe, MILIEU design director.
Hours are from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $20 prior to January 29; after that date admission is $25. Lecture tickets are priced separately.
Every year the Antiques and Garden Show hosts more than 15,000 show attendees and over 150 fine antiques and horticultural dealers, making it the biggest show of its kind in the United States. Proceeds raised from the show benefit Cheekwood—a historic estate serving as a public botanic garden, woodland sculpture trail and art museum—and more than 20 charities supported by the Economic Club of Nashville (ECON).
“I’ve attended many of the Antiques and Garden Shows in the past, and I’m excited to be a part of it this year,” says Hill. “Bobby and Ray are extremely talented and so much fun to work with. We are looking forward to sharing what we learned in transforming a 20-acre island into our private paradise getaway.”
McAlpine and Booth are partners of the interior design and architecture firm McALPINE. Known for their timeless work, the firm provides high-end design on projects ranging from residences and restaurants to private chapels and follies in a public park. The team showcases their talents around the country with offices in Nashville, Atlanta, Montgomery, and New York.
